Barra.
There was still a Grey Wagtail by the pitch at Castlebay today; the latest I've seen here. Also a Common Chiffchaff and a Woodcock present.

News from Tristan

A juvenile Iceland Gull was at the Butt of Lewis this morning. At Loch Stiapabhat: a pair of Shoveler, three Pinkfeet and the presumed local flock of c40 Barnacle Geese. A male Blackcap was at Port of Ness.

Still getting more or less daily visits from a Hawfinch to the garden in Stornoway.
